I hear some of you complaining “women always say they want a nice guy.” I know lots of women — I’m even related to a few — and I can’t say I’ve ever heard any of them say that. I can’t prove it, but this sounds like one of those things stand-up comedians say about women and everyone else just repeats. I’ve also never known a woman who cries when she breaks a nail — although I’ve known a few who swear like a 15-year-old sailor in jail — and I’ve never had a woman ask me if her outfit made her look fat unless she actually wanted and subsequently appreciated my opinion. So either I’ve stumbled upon a secret trove of women who aren’t passive-aggressive sob machines, or you need to stop mistaking Dane Cook routines for peer-reviewed sociological studies.

It doesn’t matter if you work your ass off all semester to keep up an A if you bomb the final. Holla. Going to binge eat sushi now.
But seriously, there were 15 papers, two movies, a book, and several weeks worth of notes that should have comprised this exam. But instead, a solid half of the exam is based off of one single paper, which happens to be the lengthiest and most complicated paper of them all (which we barely went over in class and didn’t even mention in the review session). /endrant
